Glaucoma is one of the conditions that causes damage the eye’s optic nerve. The most important factor associated with glaucoma is eye pressure (intra ocular pressure) which leads to progressive loss of vision later on complete blindness. It may affect both of the eyes. Vision can’t be regained if it is loss due to glaucoma. It is important to diagnose this disease as early as possible because glaucoma has few or no early symptoms.
